Aram Bartholl – WOW

The number of online computer game players increases every day. Millions of players explore the virtual worlds in so called MMORPGs Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games like World of Warcraft for example. Every Player creates his own virtual character by choosing an outfit, race and special capabilities. But every players most unique sign for the virtual charackter is the name. The so called nickname is hovering above the head of the players avatar and visible for all other players in the game.

The performance WoW transforms this typical feature from MMORPGs to the real physical world. My name and identity is floating above my head and visible to every body else in the street.

Are we living in a MMORPG? Who are you? What is your reality?
